    There are more benefits to just quick change collets....

    The collets are more precise
    You grip along the entire length of the collet not just the end of the collet like 5c
    because of this you can make more aggressive cuts without having push-back
    The collet chuck is smaller in diameter so you have more clearance.

    Lots of extras over 5c

    Hardinge also makes a QC-65 chuck. They had a deal were you buy the chuck and get 4 free collets and the tool. They also have a 5c adapter, S collet adapters, expanding mandrel adapters for ID holding. Royal collets also fit the Hardinge. Lyndex also makes chucks and collets that fit both and surprisingly MSC sells the collets for about $210 each.

    This is exactly why I want to get a cnc with this collet setup. I feel like I could run bar fed diameters and remove lots of material. I really like the way they clamp along the length of the material and not just at the end like a 5c.

    I also found a neat tool holder for circular form tools to adapt to a cnc turret. I could easily throw my Brown and Sharpe jobs on it with the same tooling.
